Arranging a low-cost cremation in Chicago

Save money on the expense of a funeral, and check cremation costs by turning to the Internet. The only problem with this is that many Chicago funeral homes on their websites do not list funeral costs.
While the FTC law rendered it federal law to provide a standard price list for funeral homes and to make it accessible to families either in person or by phone, so many funeral homes still chose NOT to have this on their website. This makes it impossible for families to use the Internet efficiently to sell store funeral services at the time of need.
We decided to improve this at J Geils Funeral Services and support families by conveniently linking them with a nearby funeral home in Chicago that provided the highest value cremation services. We decided to take the hassle out of families’ funeral price shopping.

Chicago’s low-cost cremation facilities

To create a favorite low-cost cremation provider for the Chicago area, we conducted some analysis and cremation cost comparisons. Depending on the funeral home you choose, the cost of a simple cremation can vary considerably, but you can plan a simple direct cremation in Chicago.

An affordable direct cremation package will generally include:

  • Collecting the deceased from the place of death
  • Refrigerated storage for the mandatory waiting period
  • Completion of all the necessary documentation & authorizations
  • A basic cremation container
  • The cremation
  • A temporary container to return the cremated remains to the family

Cheap direct cremation in Chicago from a Direct Disposer
Florida is one of only two states in which Direct Disposers are allowed without funeral home facilities and can run. Initially, cremation costs from a Direct Disposer might seem much lower, but I will recommend you review the small print of a Direct Disposer’s provided budget cremation carefully. To dramatically increase the cremation expense, charges such as refrigeration or out-of-hours collection are not unexpected.
Chicago’s J Geils Funeral Services business is a small , family-owned funeral home that can offer full-service cremation services but also acknowledges the need for all-budget cremation services. This makes it possible for J Geils Funeral Services to deliver a simple, dignified direct cremation to families in Chicago.

Thank you Jim Geils

To all the families that have supported my father, Jim, throughout his 45 years as a funeral director, I hope you will continue to let me serve you moving forward.

Filling my father’s shoes, will not be an easy task and something I will forever strive for; however, he has given me the knowledge, guidance, experience and lasting relationships within the funeral industry that will hopefully make this transition possible.

He was my confidant, superior but mostly my biggest fan. I know he will be with me always, leading and guiding me to be the best funeral director I can be.

I will continue my father’s legacy as best and for as long as I can, with your love, help and support.
